I feel that the whole 'character receives fan hate/they try to redeem character/they kill off character right after' shtick is getting overplayed. If they do kill off Ben, they better not have him be heroic, or at least be better in the eyes of the player first. Because they've done this every time so far. Just leave it as is. Let the fact that he's just a kid be enough reason for not wanting him to die. I for one don't want him to die, even if I don't like him.
